So I'm not encouraging the girlboss-ification of fraud, but the latest Anna Delvey news got me thinking: why not dress up as a scammer for Halloween?

On Monday, Netflix shared the first official images of Shonda Rhimes's upcoming series, Inventing Anna, chronicling the rise and fall of a certain Russian-born redhead who tricked New York City's beautiful people into thinking she was an heiress.

Julia Garner will play Delvey, who went viral after New York Magazine lifted the veil on her antics in a 2018 exposé.

To nail the con artist's look, try recreating one of her courtroom outfits with a black dress, ballet flats, a thin black choker, and zero sense of remorse. Don't forget her signature: a pair of chunky CELINE glasses.

If Delvey seems too passé, this year saw several other scammers enter the chat.

DeAnne Brady, co-founder of multi-level marketing company and "stinky leggings" provider LuLaRoe, was the subject of a much-buzzed-about docuseries, LuLaRich, which hit Amazon Prime in September.

Perhaps you could dress as a pair of said leggings? They're a dime a dozen on secondhand sites such as ThredUP.

Another famous de-fraudster, Elizabeth Holmes of Theranos — the health tech company that intentionally misled investors and patients into thinking its blood tests worked — is about to enter the third month of her highly publicized trial.

To dress as the disgraced entrepreneur, all you need is a black turtleneck sweater, heavy eyeliner, and a wide-eyed, robotic expression plastered on your face.

Lastly, we have Jen Shah, the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City cast member who was arrested in March and charged with conspiring to commit wire fraud and money laundering.

Her "Shah-mazing" look largely revolves around OTT designer outfits, topped off with a Louis Vuitton backpack. She's particularly partial to Versace's all-over prints.

So, WTF are you waiting for? Crack out the charisma, and get to swindling — extra candy, that is.
